2011 bottle pours orange with a rosy tint. Small white head with decent lacing. Aroma of flowers with some brett funk and hint of orange and lemon. Floral notes in taste with orange rind, some earthy barnyard and a slight tartness. Medium bodied with thin mouthfeel, lively carbonation and dry finish. Nice and very drinkable. Puts one in mind of Orval without being a clone.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a big floral character from the hibiscus with mild fruit and some light funk. The flavor has more floral character, mild berry notes, light funk, light tart, yeast, some citrus, biscuity malts, interesting.

Rated based on notes taken on 18 Mar 2012 -- on first taste this isn’t very impressive. As you drink more the depth comes through. The floral of Hibiscus and tart of the tea, crazy good.

2011 bottle from my cellar. Holy gusher, Batman! Glad I opened this near my sink!! Very slightly reddish hue to an otherwise nice Amber color. Big white head for sure. Slightly funky and horsey nose. Nice taste, still some good herbal bitterness there. Nice Brett character, and very slightly sour in the finish. Nice and dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber into a Portsmouth brewing tulip glass.
The color is bright orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice thin lacing.
The smell is a bit floral with a touch of hop aroma. There is also a great Belgian yeast aroma mixed with some slight fruits in the nose. Peach and pear aroma comes out just slightly as a tease for things to come.
The taste has a nice Belgian flavor with some floral hops coming meet you at first. A fruit flavor swims about this beer as it turns to a wet peach or apple skin flavor with hop bitterness returning to reclaim its dominance at the forefront of this beer,
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkability that gives off a smooth mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle. Pour is hazed bright golden orange with a tight white head. Nose is strong brett, citrus and a good bit of lemon, dusty notes, hint of herbal tea behind. Taste also has a ton of brett, a little overpowering in the flavor, still extremely citrusy with a good bit of lemon. More dusty notes, moderately herbal, hints of cobb webb. Body is light, even so faintly syrupy in back, very assertively carbonated, and a fairly dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is nice and fruity with a decent floral character. Light spicy phenolic character. Light graininess with a moderate yeast character.
Pours a cloudy golden orange with some light brown notes and a fairly thick, somewhat tall white head that displays above average retention while slowly fading to the edges. Moderately high lacing with faint legs.
Flavor is less appealing than the aroma with a light graininess and medium citrus and stone fruit. Medium light floral notes with a light bitterness and soft water character. Medium light phenolic notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a really nice beer with a great soft water character and tons of nice floral and fruit esters. I really like the way the aroma is more floral while the flavor is fruity. Nice, balanced phenolic notes.
